In this one-day course, we will discuss what it means to be tax-exempt, review the Form 990, and cover nuances of tax reporting for such organizations including fundraising activities, compensation, and other applicable taxes.

We’ll help you recognize the types of activities that can jeopardize your 501(c)(3) status and provide some tips on avoiding those activities. We will also cover current events of the sector.

Presenter – Jennifer Becker Harris

9:30am – Walk-Through of the Form 990 –The Form 990 is open to public disclosure for all non-profits. We will help you position your organization for success in completing the 990-core form and various supplemental schedules, including discussion of related organizations, interested persons, and the public support test. The form heightens transparency and disclosure and we’ll help you make sure your organization is in compliance.
